PTSG has the privilege of working on some of the UK’s most outstanding and iconic buildings. From historic castles and monuments to cutting-edge skyscrapers, we are proud to play our part in ensuring they are safe and protected, clean and operationally efficient.

Warwick Castle is without doubt one of Britain’s finest castles. William the Conqueror built the original motte and bailey castle in 1068. In the 12th century, the castle was rebuilt in stone. During the Hundred Years War, the facade opposite the town was refortified. This resulted in one of the most recognisable examples of 14th-century military architecture.

The British Tourist Authority named Warwick Castle one of Britain’s “Top 10 historic houses and monuments” in 2001. The list included Tower of London, Stonehenge, and Edinburgh Castle. Authorities protect the castle against unauthorized change as a scheduled monument, recognizing its status as a “nationally important” archaeological site or historic building.

Authorities protect the castle against unauthorized change as a scheduled monument. This is in recognition of its status as a “nationally important” archaeological site or historic building. It is a Grade I listed building together with its boundary walls, stables, conservatory, mill and lodge.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd carried out full test and inspection of lightning protection system to protect the castle and users.

Once installed, a lightning protection system must undergo professional testing at least once a year. This is to ensure it is capable of conducting a potential lightning strike to a safe earthing point. This ensures compliance with the Electricity at Work Act 1989 and BS EN 62305. If any repairs are necessary to ensure a system remains compliant, PTSG’s highly qualified and experienced engineers can deliver them.
